Self-fulfillment by Alan Gewirth ( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alan Gewirth begins by distinguishing two models of self-fulfillment - aspiration-fulfillment and capacity-fulfillment - and shows how each of these contributes to the intrinsic value of human life. He then distinguishes between three types of morality - universalist, particularist, and personalist - and shows how each contributes to the values embodied in self-fulfillment. Building on these ideas, he develops a 'dialectical' conception of reason that shows how human rights are central to self-fulfillment. Gewirth also argues that self-fulfillment has a social as well as an individual dimension: that the nature of society and the obstacles that disadvantaged groups face affect strongly the character of the self-fulfillment that persons can achieve

"The Defender of the Peace of Marsilius of Padua is an influential text in the history of western political thought. Marsilius offers a detailed analysis and explanation of human political communities, before going on to attack what he sees as the obstacles to peaceful human coexistence - principally the contemporary papacy. Annabel Brett's authoritative rendition of the Defensor Pacis is the first new translation in English for fifty years, and a major contribution to the series of Cambridge Texts: all of the usual series features are provided, including chronology, notes for further reading, and up-to-date annotation aimed at the student reader encountering this classic of medieval thought for the first time. This new edition of The Defender of the Peace is a scholarly and a pedagogic event of great importance, of interest to historians, political theorists, theologians and philosopher at all levels from second-year undergraduate upwards."--BOOK JACKET
